Kat Von D Holiday 2017 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini SetKat Von D Holiday 2017 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set ($49.00 for 0.80 oz.) contains eight, miniature-sized liquid lipsticks with seven shades from the permanent range and one, new and exclusive shade, Madrid. I thought the set coordinated nicely as an autumnal choice, not just a holiday one, though they are deeper, vampy shades so they may be less universally appealing. I'd love to see the brand put out trios and have a few options, like a neutral, bold, and vamp sets.
The quality was fairly consistent in the repeated shades with their full-sized versions that I had tested before--shades like Damned and Exorcism were under-pigmented and streakier in a single layer, while shades like Ludwig and Lovecraft were pigmented and applied beautifully. The set itself is a mixed bag, but the permanent versions were as well, so it's not a situation where they've sacrificed quality just for the set. The shades are lacking are ones that would benefit greatly from a lip liner underneath. There were a few minor, but noticeable, discrepancies in color for a few shades, as noted below. I re-tested the shades that differed in texture but not ones that were consistent in texture with my full-sized tubes.
A full-sized Everlasting Liquid Lipstick retails for $20.00 and contains 0.22 fl. oz. or $90.90/oz. The set contains eight shades each containing 0.10 fl. oz. (about half in size), which means there's $72.73 worth of product in the set.
